Ruby Rose Debuts as The CW's Batwoman

Ruby Rose Debuts as The CW's Batwoman

Ruby Rose will play the heroine Kate Kane, who is getting her own series next year after an introduction during the Arrowverse's "Elseworlds" crossover event (that will see The Flash, Arrow, and Supergirl teaming up and fighting crime in Gotham City). Though she will be introduced in the crossover event, Rose will then transition into her own Batwoman series, which is now in development for the 2019-20 television season at The CW.

"Growing up watching TV, I never saw somebody I could identify with, let alone a superhero", Ruby Rose said of the casting news this summer on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Atwood has designed for movies ranging from Memoirs of Geisha to Sweeny Todd, but she's not a stranger to superheroes, having designed the iconic looks for Arrow and Supergirl, among others.

On Tuesday, Amell took to Twitter to say that the crossover will begin with a not-so-nutritious breakfast for the Green Arrow. The character of Kate Kane is a lesbian, and some Twitterers didn't know that Rose was too.

As we reported last month, the crossover's title, "Elseworlds", is a nod to a set of classic DC titles that tend to happen outside of the main storyline (like Gotham by Gaslight or Kingdom Come).

Whatever world we're in, it's very exciting to get a look at Batwoman as she'll appear onscreen.
